Going Out

10 Jun

Going out…

Do you remember when you were a child, and the summer came around? School would have a commencement celebration, and everyone would go their separate ways. It was a time of going out.

Ancient Israel had something like that too. Every year Israel would gather in Jerusalem to celebrate the Feast of Shavuot — known in Greek as Pentecost. After celebrating, they would all go out to their fields and reap the great summer harvest.

They wouldn’t gather again until the fall. It was no accident that on this festival 2,000 years ago, God sent His Spirit. The disciples then had to go out into all nations — into the harvest field of the Great Commission. Going out is holy.

Do you want a life that flows in the Spirit? Do you want to grow, fulfill the Great Commission and the calling on your life? Then go out in the power of God’s Spirit, into the joy of His harvest, because it’s summertime. The harvest is great. The Spirit has come, and you need to go out.

Paul had decided to sail past Ephesusto avoid spending time in the province of Asia, for he was in a hurry to reach Jerusalem, if possible, by the day of Pentecost. Acts 20:16

Today, go out in the power of God’s Spirit, into the joy of His harvest.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
